Colin Kaepernick Accuses Own Adoptive Parents of ‘Perpetuating Racism’

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick went full ingrate and accused his adoptive parents of “perpetuating racism.”

Kaepernick sunk to a new low while trying to promote his new book during an interview that aired Thursday on CBS.

The far-left ex-football player has a new graphic novel out called “Change the Game.”

In the book, he talks about coming to terms with his racial identity while growing up in a white family.

The former star quarterback recalled disagreements with his parents that he attributed to racism saying some parts of his upbringing were “problematic.”

“I know my parents loved me,” he said.

“But they were still very problematic things that I went through.

“I think it was important to show that, no, this can happen in your own home, and how we move forward collectively while addressing the racism that is being perpetuated.

“You know, very similar to the messaging of the book is I don’t have control over all of these situations.

“But I control how I respond to it, I control how I prepare for it, and I’m a believer that in doing that, good things will happen.

“There were a lot more black people in football,” he said about choosing football over baseball.

“I was like, ‘Oh, I found some community here.’

“Five, six days a week I’m still up at 4:30, I go get my training in.”

“Yeah, that passion is still there and the ability is still there,” he added about possibly playing football again.

According to CBS:

Geared toward young adults, the graphic novel reveals the early years of Kaepernick’s life before he became a professional athlete and made headlines by taking a knee during the national anthem, sparking a movement within the NFL to protest police brutality and racial injustice.

Kaepernick said he has always been and still is a relatively introverted person.

He said his personality helps him navigate the world through tough times like when he said he faced resistance from people, including his white adoptive parents, when he tried to embrace his blackness.
